Following our Hop Club harvest on September 9th, which yielded 15kg of fresh hops, we are delighted to announce that the beer we have made from them, ‘Local Hero‘, will be available this weekend.  The beer is our attempt at a truly local beer, with malt from Tuckers in Newton Abbot, split pea flower from Grown in Totnes, and your hops.  And it’s delicious!  You will first be able to taste it at the brilliant Forking Local Food Festival, held on Vire Island between 11 and 5, September 23rd.  We will have a stall there, and will have ‘Local Hero’ on cask.

All Hop Club members, whatever your yield, will be able to collect their free bottle and have a free pint at the Brewery the following Friday, September 29th.  Feel free to drop in to our Friday Taproom and enjoy the fruits of your labour.

Good growing everyone!  We look forward to next year, to new members, more plants, more hops and more beer.

Your hops in the brew…
